SO sorry to hear of Ruths passing, we loved her and Paul dearly. We always enjoyed helping them fix things around their house, and many dinners together. Ruth and Paul would of given us the shirt off their backs if we needed it. Every time we visited they would tell us We love the barn you resided for us, even though it was years ago, they appreciated everything people did for them. TWO GREAT PEOPLE WILL BE MISSED and leave a hole in my heart. Cathy and Steve Few
